I have to plan my trip around the perimeter of the grocery store to avoid the bakery. If I weaken, even for a second, and look at an apple fritter - I have no willpower. Something about the glaze on the tender-crisp fritter with a few chunks of apple peeking out... Duplicate fritter nirvana yourself at home with this bread (minus the deep-frying)
I don’t know why I’ve been thinking of apple fritters lately - probably something to do with a whiff of them frying as I walked past the bakery the other day. I know they are far from healthy - but I have to have one occasionally.
Most Thursdays I take a sweet “breakfast-y” treat for my shift at the Conference Center - so I decided to be brave last night and dream up a bread that didn’t require all the steps your everyday fritter has to go through.
I always browse the web when I want to try something new - it’s pointless to reinvent the wheel. The only thing I came up with was a bread sold at Walmart made by Grandpa’s Oven.

It had some stellar reviews - so I thought it was worth a try. The Walmart version doesn’t look anything like this one (I’ve added their photo for comparison’s sake) - and it has raisins in addition to the apples.

This has all the things I love in an apple fritter. Little chunks of fresh apple throughout (check), tender fritter with a crisp outer crust (check), moist interior (check), and a glaze that bowls you over (check).
I need invite my family home for breakfast soon for a taste of this apple “fritter” bread - I can’t wait to try it again.
